Starring: Shakthi, Ramya Nambeesan, Aditya, Meera Vasudevan
Direction: Krishna Raam
Music: Srikanth Deva
Production: Lakshmi Movie Makers
Aattanayagan is a romantic drama starring Shakthi and Meera Vasudevan in which Krishna Raam, the debut director wields the baton. Krishna Raam has assisted directors KS Ravikumar and Vikraman and so the expectation of a clean and neat storyline is just automatic whatever the genre is. Coming from two seasoned director’s schools of experience, the presence of a good story sense becomes inevitable.
Lakshmi Movie Makers is a leading production house that gave numerous hits even when the industry was facing off-season low prospects. Usually they venture into family based entertainment though this is an action packed romantic tale. You could expect the second half to be more interspersed with action.

Shakthi, son of ace director P Vasu, dons the lead for the fourth time, his earlier ventures being Thottal Poo Malarum, Mahesh Saranya Matrum Palar and Ninaithale Inikkum. He is paired with Ramya Nambeesan, who made her maiden appearance in 2000 in a Malayalam movie but entered Tamil cinema through Cheran’s ‘Raman Thediya Seethai’. Ramya plays a village belle and ‘Billa’ fame Aditya plays the hero’s brother. Meera Vasudevan, who made her debut in ‘Unnai Charanadainthen’ is Aditya’s wife as well as Ramya’s sister. The heroine enacts a responsible girl striving to save her family.

The movie has been shot at Chennai, Hyderabad, Tirunelveli and Kumbakonam. It is a village based story with the right mix of romance and action running through the differences popping up frequently between a father and son and of course with time. Changes take place and then the usual inseparable emotional bonding of a dad –son tops their relationship bar. What happens between the duo that changes their dislike into strong affinity forms the crux of the story. The intolerant dad turning into the cajoling dad gives interesting sequences of action, romance and almost all emotions evident in a family drama.

Racy and peppy music fame Srikanth Deva has composed a few slow numbers in addition to his favorite style of village disco. What tops the album is his pacing beats probably inclined to the village- based subject. Nassar, Santhanam, Aswini, Ravi Kale, Anil Menon and Sachu support the lead cast.

Will this ‘Aattanayagan’ be the silver lining among this week’s releases? Let us wait and see!
